CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2014

CELEBRATION OF A PURPOSE FULFILLED
After He was mentioned at the age of twelve, the Bible didn't talk
about Jesus until when it was time for Him to begin His ministry. Many
people have researched a lot to know about those eighteen years of
Jesus' life. Trust me, if it was important God would have revealed it to
us. God is purpose-driven. Every time
you see Him move or speak, it is for the fulfilment of a purpose. We
didn't hear about Jesus until He was thirty, when it was time to fulfil
His purpose for coming to the world.
The reason we celebrate
Christmas today is not just because Jesus was born, but because He
achieved all that He was sent here for. If He had yielded to Satan's
temptations, if He listened to Peter, or if in Gethsemane He chose not
to die, there wouldn't have been any reason to celebrate today.
We love to celebrate birthdays but how many of us are really fulfilling
God's purposes for our lives? Birthdays would be more meaningful if we
are celebrating the accomplishment of God's divine purposes for our
lives. Birthdays should be special times in our lives for reflection and
It's not late to discover your purpose and to
start fulfilling it. Fulfilling your purpose is what will make you
fulfilled in life. Learn from Jesus.
